More than 400 employees and retirees of Eaton Corp. volunteered at three locations on the east side of Cleveland on Thursday, Sept. 22, and Friday, Sept. 23, in conjunction with United Way of Greater Cleveland’s Days of Caring.

“Just as we in the Eaton Community work together to build a quality organization, United Way works together with volunteers, local agencies and companies like Eaton to raise the quality of life for our region,” says Craig Reed, Eaton’s United Way campaign chairman and senior vice president, Supply Chain Management. “This year, we continued our support of United Way Days of Caring by assisting three organizations that provide crucial services to their neighborhood communities.”

Volunteers visited the East End Neighborhood House, 2749 Woodhill Road; the Harvard Community Services Center, 18240 Harvard Ave.; and Garden Valley Neighborhood Home, E. 71st St. and Kinsman Avenue, to provide painting, landscaping, plumbing, flooring and drywall installation, replacement of external doors, removal of old equipment and files, and many other services.

“This is Eaton’s 11th year of organizing a Day of Caring project of this magnitude,” says K. Michael Benz, United Way of Greater Cleveland president and chief executive officer. “This tremendous volunteer project is just one of the many ways Eaton Corporation supports our community through United Way.”
